This week, fans of HBO's Game of Thrones TV adaptation learned about some of the new cast members joining the sword-swinging, back-stabbing gang in Westeros in the upcoming season.
Diana Rigg, famous for her role as Emma Peel in The Avengers during the 1960s, will be playing Lady Olenna Tyrell, grandmother of Loras and Margaery Tyrell. Also joining the cast will be Mackenzie Crook, who was in the original BBC version of The Office and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, playing the role of Orell, a wildling bandit with the ability to control animals. Tobias Menzies, who is no stranger to epic HBO TV series after starring as Brutus in Rome, will portray Edmure Tully, Catelyn Stark's younger brother. You can see the rest of the cast additions here.
Unfortunately, the highly anticipated third season won't air until March 31, 2013. Until then, test your knowledge of the second season with this Game of Thrones quiz.
